Description: Decent .50-60 cartridge with the rare headstamp of "50 CAL.” According to Berkeley Lewis, this example was manufactured at Springfield. There are three crimps located .503” down from the case mouth. The casing is free of dents but has inconsistent coloring. The top is somewhat shiny, and the bottom area is dull. There is an old tape residue mark near the head on one side. It appears to have been varnished or lacquered at one time and needs to be properly cleaned. A hard cartridge to find and the second of its type I’ve been able to offer.
Headstamp: Impressed "50 / CAL” with four tic marks.
Measures: OAL 1.916” CL 1.473” RD .640” HD .562” CM .506” BDaCM .478”
